Best drum teacher for anyone!!

I would highly recommend Mike Behlmar for anyone who is looking to learn how to play drums…no matter what skill level you are at.

When our 7 year old son showed an interest in learning to play drums, we were fortunate to have been referred to Mike by a good friend at our church who played in the worship band. Our friend said that he himself had taken advanced lessons with Mike and he knew that Mike was very good at teaching at any skill level, beginner on up.

Mike has always been very patient and encouraging to our son on learning the basics of playing drums. He has been able to not only teach the basics but, he has done it in a way that was both entertaining and instructional at the same time. Our son loves to play and actually enjoys practicing! You can’t say that about most kids learning an instrument!

Mike has introduced various types of music in his instruction…anything from Rock, Blues, R&B, Oldies, etc. Our son has been able to learn the basics and has been able advance beyond the basics in playing these various styles of music.

Our son is 9 now and he is still taking lessons from Mike and he continues to improve in his ability to play drums. It has been a joy to see him grow and develop in his skills and still be challenged and encouraged to enhance his drumming skills.

If you or your kids want to learn how to play drums, or if you are wanting to “step up to the next level” in your skills and you would like to learn from someone who has the ability to teach, and who loves to teach…then you need to contact Mike Behlmar.

Excellent teacher!

Michael was very patient with my daughter and explained things to her using examples she could relate to and understand. She knocked it out of the park in her school performance thanks to Mike! She has been taking lessons for over a year and out of many activities she has tried, this is one she wants to keep taking lessons.
